Being John Malkovich
Dir. Spike Jonze (1999) Directed by Spike Jonze from Charlie Kaufmans highly original script, this prize head-scratcher invites all analogy-seekers to cast their nets wide. The movie drafts brain-twisting conundrums, surrealist humour, and self-conscious fictionalizing in the service of a Warholian riff on celebrityits droll, uncanny, live-action puppet show is actually something new.
